Discern.Pursue.Crucify: Next Steps From SundayPosted: August 21, 2012
In Sunday’s message we learned about our freedom in Christ.
In Christ we are free from the have-tos of legalism. But we are not free to do whatever we want. The want tos of the libertines is also slavery. In Christ we are free to pursue a life with God. That’s our freedom in Christ.
On a practical level I suggested this habit: Discern your heart. Pursue your desires provided they are good or neutral. Ask God to crucify those desires which are bad.
There is tremendous freedom in living this way. It’s a life without rules for this that and the other thing. It’s a life of following the Spirit which is transforming, guiding and directing you.
So try living a life of freedom this week. Discern desires. Pursue the good/neutral ones. Ask God to crucify the bad ones. Live free.
